Garmin 595 with Tpms sensors.

Post by keddy2582 »



I bought this new a couple years ago and I have always had problems with rear sensor not wanting to connect or stay connected I have deleted, repaired, switch front to rear and still cannot figure out why. Called Garmin they said it's because it's a goldwing and it can't get through all the bags and stuff. Anybody else have this problem or a solution. I had a cheap eBay system that worked great and was looking forward to this wirking but have been disappointed ☹️.

Try replacing the battery... on both sensors.

Has any one had success with the Garmin TPS? I just bought a Garmin 590 with intentions of adding the TPS. But if no one has had any luck with them, I'm not wasting $70.

So I had an issue with Garmin 395 when I first installed. Please see this: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=44560&p=275643#p275643

Note in that linked post that the Garmin Tech Support was not able to fix my problem on my first call. The phone answerer claimed to own a bike and seemed helpful but neither he nor his computer had experienced my problem before and he put in a ticket for a real technician to call me.

Since then however, all has been well. Even after sitting all winter. I pulled the sensors and checked pressures before anything else. Reinstalled sensors and Garmin was spot on without issue.

To keddy2532, the unit is made to operate with sensors on trailer wheels so I can't imagine it not working right on your bike. I know you have had this problem for a while and you have tried this before but my only suggestions are making sure you have latest updates, reset GPS completely as per linked post and new batteries. Well there is one other idea. Pull the core from the valve stem (deflate first) and install another a new one. Don't think this is a problem but it's all I have.

To Cardinal, I would buy again. I do not consider the TPMS sensors a waste of money and plan to buy another pair once I get a new trailer.

I have a Zumo 390 that I have had on two bikes, both with TpMS without any problems other than having to change the sensor batteries a couple of times.

I have the same problem with Tire Guard TPMS on my 2005. Rear wheel is always delayed readings to the unit mounted on my dash. If I unscrew the sender and screw it back on it reads immediately. But, while riding it takes forever to read. I think like a previous post it is because so much in blocking the signal like bags, etc. I thought about mounting the receiver on the passenger grab rail to see if getting it closer would help. But that is not practical while riding.
It ain't the destination but the getting there. You are not lost until you run out of gas.

I have a Tire Gard TPMS on my ST1300, It works without any problems. Did have to replace batteries once. I had this unit on two gold wings before I bought my Garmin Zumo 390.
